'Frustration'
 
“Creative Blocks will affect most artists and designers at some point or another. Moods, emotions and the surrounding environment can all be contributing factors. I have personally struggled with my own creative block over the past few months, and I felt that by focusing my project on strategies to cope with a block, it could help me work through it.
 
I wanted to capture the experience of going through a creative block – the frustration and the confusion – almost like a diary.  In this personal journal, I wanted to highlight my own experience through the words of other creative practitioners. I emailed several artists and designers that I had admired in the past, asking how they get over their creative blocks and then illustrated their responses. I have noticed that when I am unsure of my next steps I tend to make random markings and patterns with whatever materials that surround me. I conveyed my frustration that had come from the creative block by using paper cut typographic stencils, to shield off areas on the canvas, then by using agitated and stabbing markings to release the raw frustration, leaving a beautiful clear and calm typographic message behind.”
